real cute i didn\'t get it until i was explaining past tense and gave the example, eat and ate, and that was the asnwer.
Jan 23, 2005

I got it. That was easy.
Apr 04, 2005

cute but easy.
Oct 24, 2007'd you all find it easy? I gave up quickly... But once I saw the answer, I liked it! Great teaser.

that was crazy
May 25, 2008

That was fun -- easy too if you used the hint, not so easy if you didn't.
May 25, 2008

Saw it before,but still a good one.
May 25, 2008

I thought this was a really good teaser. It must have taken a lot of thought to come up with this one. Oh, by the way, I didn't get it, I'm ashamed to admit.
May 25, 2008

very good one, but I didn't get it.
May 25, 2008

i suck at teasers
May 25, 2008

i got it only after using the hint though
May 25, 2008

i thought the hint was kinda lame...not all food is yummy. good teaser though.
May 25, 2008

with the hint it wuz easy. good teaser!
May 25, 2008

I thought it was hard, but fun to learn about. Thanks!
May 26, 2008

Ha, it took me a moment, but I got it! Yah!
May 25, 2011

Cute teaser.
May 25, 2011

I was trying to think of a word that began with the letter "D" and ended with an "E", so that by moving it to the end, it would be "ed" and therefore would be past tense.


Good teaser!
May 25, 2011

Didn't get it until I read the hint, and then it was obvious. Still a great teaser.
May 25, 2011

I didn't get it until I read the hint. Very clever.
May 25, 2014

Got it but needed the hint.
May 25, 2014

yum, yum led me off in a wide area of possible answers. None of which helped. The I stood back and looked at the BIG picture......voila!! EAT-ATE
May 25, 2017

How many words are there in this world?? You have to go through a great many to figure this one out. The hint sounded more like something to eat, more than just the word eat does so I do not think it was that good. Hooray for the smart ones that say they got it, if indeed they did. Just an opinion folks!
May 25, 2017

That teaser was awesome. I am a big fan even if I didn't get it without the hint! Still an awesome teaser!
May 25, 2017

Not as many as you may think. While The Global Language Monitor claims there are
988,968 words in the English language, That of includes course all variations and tenses of a word.
Run, Runner, runners, and running are all count as separate words.

The OED contains 171,476 words in current use, and 47,156 obsolete words.

As far as the teasers concerned, I got it only after reading the hint. I too was looking for a word that start with D and end with an e.
May 25, 2017

It's super hard, but the hint gave it away.
May 26, 2017

Good one but I was thinking of 'Eaten'.
